Shows celebrate the end of lockdown and the return of live music
With the UK starting to ease slowly out of its third coronavirus lockdown, Mike Skinner's The Streets are to play a series of intimate gigs in their hometown of Birmingham, in the build-up to headlining the city's MADE Festival.
The band will play five consecutive nights at The Mill in Digbeth, starting on Monday 21 June – the date currently set for the end of all coronavirus-related restrictions on social movement in England – and running through till the Friday.
Monday-Thursday, there will be a capacity of 500 and the evening's entertainment will run from 7pm-10.30pm, but on the Friday night, capacity is boosted to 800 and a more club-like feel is promised, with doors opening at 9pm and the event running till 3am. Tickets cost £27.50 and go on sale at 10am tomorrow (Mon 29 March), so if you want to go, you'd best get in quick – see the dedicated website for full details.
After that The Streets will, as previously reported, headline Birmingham's MADE Festival on 31 July, which like the shows at The Mill is brought to you by promoters Weird Science.
